OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
This holiday activity is great for kiddos of all ages. This can be scaled down for those young toddlers, or even scaled up for our Kindergartners, First Graders, and beyond. All you need is a paper plate and absolutely anything that you want to use to decorate the wreath. I used crayons (grip practice), dot markers (twisting the lids), and yarn (fun???). Feel free to use paint and paint with those fingers (finger isolation), or with a paint brush (tool use), or use stickers (FM manipulation), or clippings from a hole puncher (grip strength), etc... This can be decorated for any holiday, not just Christmas!
For the young kiddos, you can have the wreath precut and for the older kiddos you can have then not only cut the wreath, but write a few sentences about their favorite holiday decoration.
